Just wanted to ask anyone's opinion about professionally produced wargaming mats, the pre-painted sort you throw over a couple of books on a table, add trees and houses, etc. Any makers you prefer ??? Thanks!!!

I have bought a lot of mats over the years and must say that Cigar Box Battle Mats are the best I've ever owned. They drape beautifully over books, sculpted hills etc. I use mine over Hexon and Terrain Guy hills and it looks great.

In the UK I've had great service and excellent mats from The BigRedBat link .

Not sure who makes them for FoW,but from what I've seen,those specific ones look decent.

Another vote for Cigar Box. I use pieces of carpet padding under mine to get some variation in the ground.
